THE MICHIGAN DAILY_____
Is Pleaned For
Friday, May I
Decorations At Party Will
Give Arabian Nights Air;
Don Lyon Is Chairman
The brilliance of the Architects
Party, to be held May 11 in Granger's
Ballroom, will have to depend more
on the decorations than on the cos-
tumes of the guests, according to an
announcement made yesterday by
Don Lyon, '34A, general chairman.
Although the party is being an-
nounced all over the campus as the
Architects Costume Party, the un-
willingness of the students on the
campus to deck themselves out in
fancy costumes has caused the com-
mittee to make the wearing of cos-
tumes optional, Lyon said.
For many years before 1926 there
was considerable agitation on the
campus for a costume party. The
chief argument of the exponents of
the idea was that it would be the only
party of its kind in the middle-west
and as such it would attract a lot
of comment in this area. Aftera long
and sustained fight the costume-ad-
vocates won their point and for the
next year or .two the campus saw a
party that rivalled the J-Hop in color
In those years the party attained
a prestige worthy' of the Parisian
Beaux Arts. The entire College of Ar-
chitecture worked for weeks before
the party designing and building the
setting and preparing the gymnasium
for the dance, and the night of the
party the floor was crowded with
guests wearing costumes in keeping
with the decorations.
This year, the setting of the party
is the cave of Sesame in the mythical
land of the Arabian Nights. Work has
already been started on making up
the decorations and will proceed more
rapidly when all of the working draw-
ings are completed, Lyon said.
The contest for the best poster de-
sign to advertise the party was won by
Bruce Lafer, '35A. Second and third
awards were made to Charles Stock-
ing, '36A, and Margaret Culver, '35A.
Ten others received honorable men-
The tickets have all been placed in
the hands of committeemen and more
have been ordered, according to Lyon.
The price of the tickets is $2.

Synthetic Diamnonds Are

MADRID, Spain, May 1. -Dia-
monds may be made synthetically in
large quantities for commercial use
in the near future, in the opinion
of Prof. Obdulio Fernandez, chief of
the pharmacy faculty at the Univer-

Linen, Checked Materials Are
Best For Spring Campus Wear
Fashion news is coming fast and
furious and innovations are appear-
ing every day, with last spring's fash-
ion favorites staging unexpected
comebacks. The latest summer fash-
ion to put in its appearance "under
the clock" is the linen suit, which
seems none the worse for its recent
One of the most charming of such
suits to be seen was worn by one of
our more prominent campus women.
It was green linen, not chartreuse or a
pastel shade but a real virile grass
green and was made with a short
double breasted tailored jacket worn
over a severe brown linen blouse.
With it there was a broad brimmed
white hat with a narrow brown edge
and broad bown ribbon and brown
and white shoes completed the cos-
Another of these suits was sighted
in dark blue linen, It too featured the
short jacket, though not of the dou-
ble breasted variety and it was com-
bined with a white pique blouse.
Little white pique cuffs made it look
still more clever, cool, and some-
So far we haven't seen any white
linen suits, but we're sure that with
the grace of God and the weather
man they will soon be forthcoming.
Besides these there are other suits,
not quite so summery in appearance.
One of the most tailored which we
saw today was a dark brown skirt
combined with a double-breasted
jacket of tiny brown checks. The
wearer of this outfit also indulged in
a floppy brim.
And may. we mention the char-

which did not cling to the strictly
tailored type. One of the most at-
tractive was aquamarine crepe with
a brown taffeta collar, cuffs, and'
jabot effect. It also featured a brown
patent belt which did not buckle but
tied with little bows of the crepe.
Another of the dressier costumes
was a blue taffeta suit with large
white dots painted on it. All we could
see of it in a passing glance was that
it had perfectly huge short puffed
sleeves, which hid the rest of the
